    In the 1950s, cocktail attire was informal, or at least less formal than dinner attire.

    Cocktail attire in an office context is more formal and directed more towards women than men. It suggests cocktail dresses, which are more elegant (and sexier) than normal office wear for women.

    Men should wear something appropriate to accompany a woman in a satin dress and heels. To me that means a dark suit with a white shirt and black shoes. Ties can be a bit more daring and have a bit of a sheen.

    Looks good. I would suggest straight lacing on the shoes.

    Ditto. If you are criss-crossing to keep them tight, you can always get longer shoelaces and criss-cross on the bottom with the bars on top. That is, go across over, diagonal under.

    @winghus I believe I got it from the Knottery. Got a lot of compliments on it at the party.

    can't believe it's holiday party time again....

    have one Friday...wearing charcoal suit and contemplating a knit tie. It's business dress but on the more casual end of business dress. Was just thinking of playing around and doing knit or possibly bow tie even. Not sure I want to go with the bow though....

    Going to the one Christmas party I can't avoid tonight.



    JCP velvet blazer, LE shirt and flannel trousers, S&M tie, PRL boots, Hamilton watch on Staib mesh bracelet. The color on the belt and shoes matches a little more closely in reality than in the photos....

    Hello!

    Can anyone give me suggestion about the cocktail attire for male and female, both, for this year Christmas party?
